Some of the minerals that are found in food are calcium, fluorine, iodine, iron, phosphorus, sodium and zinc. These are all the ones that were spoken about in the class I am taken, so there may be more than this, but these are the basic ones that I know about. I hope that this can solve your questio…n. ~ a 10th grader Examples: . calcium . fluorine . iodine . iron . phosphorus . sodium . zinc and more Mineral nutrients are also inorganic elements found in food which the body cannot synthesise (MORE)
THE DIFFERENT FOOD NUTRIENTS: 1.Carbohydrates-gives energy to the body.Commonly known as the GO FOODS. Ex: rice corn cake camote bread 2.Proteins-muscle cells and tissue builder and producer of body endurance.Commonly known as GROW FOODS. Ex: meat fish milk eggs 3.Fats-are nutrients that give ene…rgy and protection against temperature changes and keeps the different parts of the body healthy and work well. Ex: nuts butter cheese margarine 4.Vitamins and Minerals-help the body use other nutrients and fight infection.It promotes growth and the work of the body. Ex: carrots papaya pineapple malunggay 5.Water/Juice-carrier of the nutrients of the body. (MORE)
A nutrient cycle (or ecological recycling ) is the movement and exchange of organic and inorganic matter back into the production of living matter. The process is regulated by food web pathways that decompose matter into mineral nutrients. Nutrient cycles occur within ecosystems. Ecosystems are i…nterconnected systems where matter and energy flows and is exchanged as organisms feed, digest, and migrate about. (MORE)
Once the food has reached the stomach and is worked on by enzymes to break them down into absorbable forms of proteins and carbohydrates and other nutrients the 'food' is now passed into the small intestine from where it is absorbed accross the small intestine lining through the cells into the blood… and taken round the body. On its way round the body, the nutrients in the blood are absorbed into the places where they are needed. To sum this up, the body absorbs the nutrients into the blood through capillaries in the intestines. (MORE)
Nutrient Cycle, is a general term for the course traced by any particular life-essential substance as it moves through the physical and biological environment. The nutrient cycle is a basic concept in ecology. Essential nutrient cycles include those of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and water. Many other… elements and compounds are also essential, even if only in trace amounts. Nutrient cycle is the process by which nutrients are passed from living things to non-living things in a continuous cycle. (MORE)
There are very few foods that have no nutrients whatsoever, but still have calories. More foods would fall into the range that they contain calories, but very little nutrients. These are known as "empty calories", meaning that they really do not help for the body. Some examples of these would be …fried foods, refined sugars / starches, bleanced flours, and high-fat foods (like butter and lard). (MORE)
Two questions: Food is broken down in the stomach and small intestines. Nutrients (plus other related stuff) is carried from the small intestines to the liver via the portal system. Some nutrients pass directly from the liver to the veins (inferior vena cava), then is carried by the blood to… the rest of the body. Other chemicals are modified by the liver into useful compounds, then are also dumped into the vena cava for distribution. (MORE)
Nutrients are chemical elements and compounds found in the environment that plants and animals need to grow and survive.
how can metabolism related to nutrients in foods your metabolism releases the energy from the nutrients you obtained
Higher nutrient density allows you to get more benefit, from a smaller amount of food. Because of the higher nutrient density (found in fruits, vegetables and other natural foods) you will feel less hungry than you would if you ate pop tarts and potatoe chips.
High GI gives a quick rush of glucose that then drops off just as quick as low GI. Low GI foods tend to provide a longer feeling of fullness while High GI gives it suddenly and then drops just as quick as the low GI so low GI is much better.
Many vegetables contain different nutrients and vitamins. For example, sweet potatoes are high in potassium and vitamin K but not all vegetables are high in these nutrients.
I think that it is water but I can't be sure. We just learned this in science so I might know. If I find out I will post it.
Food are substances that are taken into the body to sustain life, provide energy, and promote growth. Nutrients, on the other hand, are substances that gives us nourishment. We take them from the foods we consume or the different types of liquid we drink.
Potatoes, kale, blue-berries, garlic, eggplant, cucumbers, salmon,sardines, egg yolks and liver are some of the food items that arenutrient dense. The primary advantage of nutrient dense food isthat it gives you more health benefits in lesser number ofcalories.
This is accomplished by the circulatory system - from the arteries, to the arterioles, down to the tiniest of capillaries, which feed all tissues, including muscle and bone. Exchange finally occurs between the capillary membrane and the cell membrane.
Nutrients are found in all foods. well No s*** it is because nutrients come out of all the good foods that make all the c***** foods that make you s**** little things FAT,,, yeh that's right i said FAT
The most nutrient-rich foods are leafy green vegetables, followed by sea vegetables, other vegetables (roots, stems. etc.), mushrooms, legumes, seeds, and whole grains. Foods that lack nutrients include those that have been highly refined or processed, including sugar, soda, corn syrup, jelly, marga…rine, alcoholic beverages, cake, chips, french fries, pastry, oil, and cookies.

Possible various dead animals come close. But that's if you eat the bones, organs, brains, etc.(nearly every part of it). "Need" is very subjective to. There are things in foods like green tea for example that are not necessarily a biological necessity but may have significant health benefits.
No. That's what it is called "junk food". There is a lot of salt, sugar, and calories. It is bad for you and gives no value to your diet.
Steaming conserves nutrients well because the food's vitamins, minerals and general nutrients cannot be absorbed by water.
all foods have nutrients in them acually nutrients is carbohaydretes fats protian mineral water vitimans
Nutritienal treat noramlly include the following fruits,veggies and other suggested snacks - cucumbers - apples -oranges -carrots/ celery And lotz of other nutrientinal snacks
well you should eat all kinds of food like fruits and veggies you know, broccoli has certain nutrients that prevent cancer and there are just so many other benefits i could just go on and on. You know what here just go to this website it might just answer your questions!:) http://www.mypyramid.gov/… (MORE)
This is a multifasceted question as there is no one place nutrients enter the bloodstream. If you are looking for a general answer, the gastrointestinal (GI) system digests and places the digested nutrients in the body via the bowels (large and small) through extensive networks of capillaries. The n…utrients cross over to the blood stream via capillaries within the bowel and are distributed with the rest of the blood stream. (MORE)
Foods that do not follow nutrient density and contain less nutrients that calories. Ex. chocolate ice cream cookies cake
No, for example, egg whites are packed with protein. 1/4 Cup of Egg whites is about 30 calories and contain about 7 grams of protein
No one food contains all the nutrients your body needs. Good foods contain a range of nutrients, but there is no one food. Eating a balanced diet will give you the nutrients you need to sustain a healthy body. Hope this helps. :)
Live is dense in protein and natural sugars it is one of the only foods you can solely survive on, also nuts are good for protein and carbohydrates, avocado is rich in amino acids and natural fats that are good for hair skin and nails.
This is what i copied from google. The availability of nutrients from foods derived from animals is very high and often surpasses the availability of the same nutrients in plants. Animals provide the bulk of dietary protein and calories to Americans and are a major source of vitamin A, iron, and ot…her nutrients. Foods derived from animals contribute significantly to total nutrients in the U.S. food supply. Moreover, the availability to humans of the nutrients in animal products is high, often exceeding the availability for the same nutrients, e.g., calcium and phosphorus, in foods derived from plants.

Dosa is a common breakfast dish and street food. It is rich in carbohydrates, and it contains Vitamin B and Vitamin C. Rice and lentils in dosa provide protein. .
true and i will give u and explanation. U ready? OK! its true because i said it is and it is1just listen in school
The small bowel absorbs nutrients from food but first it must be broken down into amino acids ie: proteins, carbohydrates, fibre etc... before being transported round the body.
Not really its not a good idea to just focus on one sort of food,you need a variarity to be healthy as some foods have things that others don't.
It slows to process of ripening which "locks in" the nutrients. Though even if the food is cooled or frozen it will still lose nutrients; albeit the process will just be slower. This mostly goes for fruit and vegetables.
Yes, there are risks with eating food with high amounts of potassium such as a banana. Some of the risks are heart problems, and cardiac arrest. Over time, these problems can kill you. However, keep in mind that you would need to eat about 250 bananas in a day to reach a lethal dose of potassium, …so it's highly unlikely to die from normal amounts of potassium in food. Under most circumstances, your body maintains blood levels of potassium within a tight range, so it is not usually possible to produce symptoms of toxicity through intake of potassium-containing foods. However, high intakes of potassium salts (potassium chloride and potassium bicarbonate) may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and ulcers. In addition, certain medications can cause elevated potassium levels. Your kidneys play an important role in eliminating excess potassium from the body, so if you suffer from kidney disease, your doctor may have you limit your intake of potassium. The National Academy of Sciences has not established a Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) for potassium. (MORE)
Wetlands have such high nutrients because in wetlands there are slow moving waters so all the nutrients will stay in place that were in the waters. Also, the trees have a high number of nutrients too; so if they die, they will keep the nutrients that they have.
I don't really know but you can just ask this question and telling what the type of food is, and I'm sure you will find the answer. I hope this helped !
the creature ants, eat crumbs that may or may not have nutrients in them. The nutirents give them more power like a energy drink would give more power to a person.
Once the food enters the stomach, acids come in and absorb those nutrients and bring them to the organs

The major nutrients in food are protein, carbohydrates, and lipids (fats). These are the nutrients that your body can use for energy, and so these nutrients have calories. Other nutrients include water, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrients do not have calories because the body does not get energ…y from them directly, but they are still essential for normal body functions. Alcohol is sometimes considered a nutrient because it has calories and can be beneficial in some cases, such as red wine preventing heart disease. However, it is not essential to health, and so it is not an essential nutrient. There is some debate as to whether it should be considered a nutrient at all. (MORE)
Most foods contain some amount of protein,carbohydrates and somevitamins and minerals. The amounts vary sharply,
Almost no fat, little fiber, carbs, sugar or protein. Ginger has agood amount of potassium - and not much else.
yes, it depends on what you eat if you eat food high in nutrients then it will be transfered to your blood.
Nutrients are important for health. Body needs different complimentof nutrients to gain esential cellular activity. So we shouldprotect foods for survive regularly.
For example, fruit and vegetables are considered nutrient-densefood, while highly refined products containing added sugars.
Flour has almost no nutritional value, as it is pure calories, thatin our body becomes sugar, which becomes vinegar and alcohol. Flouris one of three "whites" among sugar and salt that is recomended tostop consuming.
does anyone know? need the answer for my foods class. thanks. ***************************** Two types of dairy produce rich in nutrients are whole milk andcheeses. All dairy products are based on milk (commonly from adairy cow).
